Provincial Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Senator Shibli Faraz has said that big questions are raised by the two provinces in the Senate election and Prime Minister Imran Khan is also committed to transparency in the Senate elections.
Regarding the cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad, Shibli Faraz said that Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted Senate election on which no one could raise a finger.
He said that the appointment of heads of government agencies was a challenge, adding that there was a system of illegality in all agencies, which was being reformed.
He further said that 93 meetings of the Cabinet were held and 1759 decisions were taken, out of which 1589 or 90.3% have been implemented.
Senator Shibli Faraz said that 46 decisions were being worked on while 28 were delayed.
When PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal filed a petition in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for a reference against Prime Minister Imran Khan, the federal minister said that past rulers ran governments on the basis of greed and corruption. Ahsan Iqbal is representing a leadership that left the party helpless and went abroad.
He said that Ahsan Iqbal was playing the role of courtier while whenever there was any difficulty in the country, his leadership left everything and ran away.
The Federal Minister for Information said that now the aim of the opposition is to save its leaders instead of improving the country.
Talking about the challenges facing by the economy due to the Coronavirus, he said that despite heavy debts, Pakistan’s economy is better than many other countries during the pandemic situation.
Senator Shibli Faraz said that even in these circumstances, foreign investment, remittances and exports increased.
“For the first time, we have introduced a scheme for affordable housing for the poor under Pakistan Housing Scheme,” he said.
In this regard, he said that the government has an extraordinary interest in the New Pakistan Housing Scheme and that is why the buyer of a 5 marla house will get a discount of Rs. 300,000 and the government has allocated a subsidy of Rs. 30 billion.
